Well, fellahs, I finally bagged my first Tom.
Last Saturday, around 3 in the afternoon, we had a nice 2-year old wandering around, looking for love. I even "helped" call him in. I made a few soft yelps on my Ol' Betsy (which, btw, I highly recommend for newcomers. Cheap and very easy to use for a newbie that doesn't know what he's doing, like me!)
I got set up on a tree and my buddy used the mouth call to get him the last 20 yards or so. 20 pounds, 9-1/2 inch beard and one inch spurs. He wasn't a monster, but will do for me.
Will post a picture soon, if I can figure out how to make it work.
